Marie Robichaud, 96, of Auberge du Soleil, Dieppe, NB, passed away peacefully on Friday December 21, 2018 at The Moncton Hospital, Moncton. Born in Notre-Dame, she was the daughter of the late Joseph and the late Madeleine (Bourque) Robichaud.
Marie moved to Waltham, Massachusetts in her early twenties and lived there for over 70 years. During this time, she worked hard at various jobs and made many great friends. Marie loved socializing with friends, spending time at the community center and was always on the hunt for a good bargain. She loved helping people and had a very generous heart. Her wonderful smile would light up a room and she would often return to Notre-Dame to visit and help her family. Always young at heart, she shared her life experiences and stories to always inspire us to be better people.
Marie is survived by four sisters: Azilda Richard (late Alcide) of Fitchburg, Mass, USA, Nélida Goguen (late Alyre) of Notre-Dame, Emelia Robichaud of Dieppe and Eveline Richard (late Vincent) of Toronto; as well as many nieces, nephews, grand nieces and grand nephews.
Besides her parents, Marie was predeceased by her sister, Alice Robichaud; and her three brothers: Fidèle, Désiré and Edgar.
